EUNCL

European Nanomedicine Characterisation Laboratory

Our Mission is to provide a trans-disciplinary testing infrastructure covering a comprehensive set of preclinical characterisation assays (physical, chemical, in-vitro and in-vivo biological testing) allowing researchers to fully comprehend the bio distribution, metabolism, pharmacokinetics, safety profiles and immunological effects of their Med-NPs.

We are fostering the use and deployment of standard operating procedures (SOPs), benchmark materials, and quality management for the preclinical characterisation of Med-NPs (nanoparticles used for medical applications).

As nanomedicine is a fast evolving field of research, it is a key objective for EUNCL to constantly refine and adapt its assay portfolio and processes in order maintain the provision of state-of-the-art TNA to the scientific community. Therefore, we will progressively implement additional assays to increase our characterisation capacity, for instance in terms of medical application or route of administration.

The emphasis of the EUNCL is to serve as a nexus for trans-disciplinary research, development and clinical applications of nanotechnology. Therefore, lessons-learned, best practices, knowledge, tools and methods will be made available to the scientific community such as academic researchers, industry, regulatory bodies, metrology institutes and others. However, care will be taken to ensure that proprietary information and materials disclosed to the EUNCL by the TNA users are protected.

  • Seeking a Formulation Scientist
    The Nanotechnology Characterization Lab (NCL) provides nanotechnology formulation and characterization services for universities, the pharmaceutical industry and other government programs. Since our founding in 2004, the NCL has characterized more than 400 different nanomedicines for more than 100 organizations worldwide. We are currently seeking a Formulation Scientist to join our team. Those having experience with liposomes, micelles, and emulsions are especially encouraged to apply.
